The God of the Valley

My text for today is Song of Solomon 2:1–                                                                                    I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.

lilly of the valleyIf you know Jesus then you will understand what this is about.—— If you don’t know Jesus, and want to, please refer to the entry, “The Door is Left Open”

The song, The God of the Mountain has a real message for us as we face the new year.

Life is easy when your up on the mountain ,
And you got peace of mind like you’ve never known,
But when things change and you’re down in the valley
Don’t lose faith cause your never alone.

AND THE GOD OF THE MOUNTAIN
IS STILL GOD OF THE VALLEY
WHEN THINGS GO WRONG HE’LL MAKE THEM RIGHT,
AND THE GOD OF THE GOOD TIMES
IS STILL GOD OF THE BAD TIMES
THE GOD OF THE DAY IS STILL GOD OF THE NIGHT.

You talk of faith when you’re up on the mountain,
And talk comes easy when life is at its best.
But its down in the valley of our trials and temptations,
That’s when faith is really put to the test.

AND THE GOD OF THE MOUNTAIN
IS STILL GOD OF THE VALLEY
WHEN THINGS GO WRONG HE’LL MAKE THEM RIGHT,
AND THE GOD OF THE GOOD TIMES
IS STILL GOD OF THE BAD TIMES
THE GOD OF THE DAY IS STILL GOD OF THE NIGHT.

You see, if you didn’t go thru the valleys you wouldn’t get to appreciate the lilies and you would never see them or know they existed.  May God guide you thru the valleys and stop and take time to smell them.  I think you will find them sweet.
